QST is garbage. Gave up my ARRL membership because of the "dumbing down" of 
radio, and the fact ARRL has it's own agenda and doesn't reflect it's 
membership anymore.

As publications go, it was never the most technical, but it was probably the 
most complete cross-section of amateur radio as a hobby, but I miss World 
Radio more than QST
